US Senator Ted Kennedy Died

I was watching news at msnnbc and the breaking news came on saying senator Ted Kennedy has died late Tuesday early Wednesday. It is very devastating news, but we all knew that he was diagnose of brain tumor in May'09. Sen. Ted Kennedy, 77, has died after his battle with brain cancer shortly before midnight on Tuesday at his home in Hyannis Port, Mass.

Kennedy was known as the "liberal lion of the Senate." He was a known activist for health care reform and equal rights. In August, Kennedy was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama, which was accepted on his behalf by his daughter, Kara Kennedy. This award is the nation's highest civilian honor.

Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer over a year ago. Anybody who are interested on learning about Senator Edward Ted M. Kennedy, just click his name.
